A fun story from a great audiobook narrator:

And then as proof of J.K. Rowling's revenge, here's a brief compendium of the phrase in all the other Harry Potter books:

Omigosh - BOTH of these were amazing. I love Stephen's style, and his BBC video account of "pocketed-ed-it" was hillarious!

So... (probably like everyone else) I've been sitting here trying to say "pocketed it".

... I think I scored a miserable 1/10 on my first run Embarrassed

CSTs are funny old things. They can be incredibly individual I think. I just tried "Harry pocketed it" and got it 10 out of 10 times. But I can read terribly complex medical narration and trip over the word "that". One person's bugaboo can be another person's "shiny phrase on a hill".

Love this biz,

B

I have no problems with pocketed it either. But then, I grew up saying Liddlidly. (for the uninitiated, that's Little Italy - New York style)

My worst CST was ...rapidly rewarding railroad workers. That RW combo. Sent the outtakes to the client to brighten her day. Gave her the best laugh she'd had in a week.
